“Monkeys and superb view, the perfect combination”
When visiting Kyoto last spring I heard that there was a monkey park up on a mountain. Without any doubt in mind I went to the mountain that had short climb up and arrived at the park. It was very exciting for me, because it was the first time to see sooo many monkeys in one spot at the same time! I loved it! There is also a little hut where you can go inside and buy some fruits to feed to monkeys. This though, can only be done with you inside the hut and sticking your hand outside the hut to feed the monkeys outside. It was still very fun! The place is also recommendable to take beautiful picture of the city of Kyoto.
